Daniel Hernández

Daniel Hernández is Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish.

His current book project, The Accidental Ethnographers: Race, Recording Technology and Nature in Modern Latin American Fiction, focuses on how ethnographic practice and the use of various recording technologies in the Caribbean, the Amazon, and the Andes transformed literature in these regions over the course of the twentieth century. His broader interests include media theory, new materialisms, race and ethnic studies, and the relationship between anthropology and literature at large.
